Visit Wales Wins Integrated Campaign of the year at Travel Marketing Awards 2012


Wieden+Kennedy London, Kitcatt Nohr Digitas and Arena media won gold for the 'We Want Piers Bramhall' campaign.

The key message was simple: ‘Wales – For Proper Holidays’.

To build credible advocacy and inquiries, a member of the public – Piers Bramhall – was invited to visit Wales by Joanna Page and a male choir. The aim was to show him what a proper holiday was while following his every move.

The campaign focused on user-generated content, including over 100 pieces of content produced pre-trip heroing Welsh people inviting him to make the visit. The platform was Facebook, a online hub where films could be liked, shared and posted, while digital out – of – home screens broadcast daily reports on Piers’ welcome to different regions. Radio competition prizes mirrored his experience and online banners, DM and inserts drove online conversations.

The campaign reached 34 million UK adults, with the Visit Wales Facebook community growing by 14,000.196 pieces of AV content were produced in total and over 3m Londoners saw the week-long daily update. A true legacy for future visitors to Wales looking to follow Piers' footsteps and travel even further around the country.
